Teleperformance joins tech industry leaders, Thorn and All Tech is Human to support strong child safety commitments for generative AI


New York, April 23, 2024Teleperformance, a global leader in digital business services, has joined a group of key tech industry leaders including Google, Meta and Open AI in a coordinated effort aimed at preventing harm to children through the misuse of generative artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. Teleperformance is the only content moderation services provider to help launch the initiative, by committing to support tech clients in helping to keep children safe as they develop, deploy, and maintain generative AI technologies. 

The initiative, led by Thorn, a nonprofit dedicated to defending children from sexual abuse, and All Tech is Human (ATIH), an organization dedicated to collectively tackling tech and society’s complex problems, aims to mitigate the risks that generative AI poses to children. Teleperformance joins companies including Amazon, Anthropic, Civitai, Google, Meta, Metaphysic, Microsoft, Mistral AI, Open AI, and Stability AI in this effort to support child safety.

By adopting comprehensive Safety by Design principles, these tech leaders are setting new standards for the ethical development of AI, ensuring that child safety is prioritized at every stage. The commitment marks a significant step forward in preventing the misuse of AI technologies to create or spread child sexual abuse material (AIG-CSAM) and other forms of sexual harm against children. As a leader in content moderation, Teleperformance commits to supporting its clients in meeting the child safety principles by:

  • reviewing client training datasets, and safeguarding them from child sexual abuse material (CSAM) and child sexual exploitation material (CSEM);
  • helping clients detect abusive content (CSAM, AIG-CSAM, and CSEM) in data inputs and outputs;
  • assessing models for their potential to generate AIG-CSAM and CSEM and mitigating any issues found before clients host on their platforms;
  • helping clients retroactively assess hosted models for their potential to generate AIG-CSAM and CSEM, and helping to update them with improvements; and 
  • detecting, reporting, removing, and preventing CSAM, AIG-CSAM and CSEM found on clients’ platforms.

Thorn has published the principles at Additionally, select participating companies joined Thorn and ATIH to publish a comprehensive paper, "Safety by Design for Generative AI: Preventing Child Sexual Abuse," that features these principles and additional mitigations, detailing actionable strategies that AI developers, providers, data hosting platforms, social platforms, and search engines may take to implement these principles, making it more challenging for bad actors to exploit generative AI technologies for harmful purposes.

It recently was recognized as a Leader and Star Performer in Trust and Safety content moderation services by research firm Everest Group for the fourth consecutive year.
